Manuel Roland is a composer, songwriter and self-taught multi-instrumentalist born in 1978. Since he was a teenager, his love of music has evolved from jazz, to Balkans music, North African music, French chanson, pop, rock and finally film music.

Today, all these influences enhance his poetic qualities and his innate feeling for melody. Interested in each stage of creation, from the writing to the final mixing, he plays and records most parts of his music. His work could be compared to a sophisticated and harmonious do-it-yourself job.

He has composed music for numerous short films and documentaries, in particular the B.O. of “Démocratie Année Zéro” about the Arab Spring in Tunisia. In 2015, he signed the score for “L’année prochaine” a film by Vania Leturcq that won a long list of awards at various festivals. His music is praised for embodying the film’s themes and for its aptness. Very recently, he co-composed the music for “Parasol” a film by Valéry Rosier, that has just been released. A very subtle trailer that highlights the film and its enticing minimalism.

Manuel Roland also plays the saxophone in the Belgistan brass band.
